This is a critical bugfix release that solves a lot of problems especially with firegl / workstations graphics and resolutions mod 64 != 0

For me that means that in catalyst 8.02 3D didn't worked at all, it was corrupted, and the gnome screensaver flickered. I'm using a Mobility FireGL V3200 with SXGA+ on a Thinkpad T43p.

    - On workstation hardware 3D applications will no longer be corrupted
    if the screen width is not an integer multiple of 64 pixels, for
    example with a 1680x1050 wide screen display. Further details can be
    found in topic number 737-31720
    - Display flicker is no longer be noticed when the gnome screen-saver
    starts (LP: #198702)

    xorg.conf and in OpenGL games will all work as expected now.
    - Diagonal tearing will no longer be noticed when playing a video file
    using a video player that utilizes the XVideo extension
